PlayStation 5 system software update 22.01-05.02.00 is now available; Size revealed
A new PlayStation 5 system software update has gone live, introducing unspecified system performance improvements.
The new update, version 22.01-05.02.00, is around 1GB in size and doesn’t seem to do much more than introduce the aforementioned unspecified system performance improvements.
The latest major PlayStation 5 system software update, version 22.01-05.00.00, went live last month, introducing improvements to Game Base, accessibility, trophies and more.
In (Game Base), we have updated the following:
- Voice chats are now called parties.
- For easier access, we’ve split Game Base into three tabs: [Friends], [Parties] and [Messages].
- From the PlayStation 5 Game Base menu and control cards, you can now perform the following actions:
See all your friends under the [Friends] tab in the control menu.
Start Share Play directly from the voice chat card. You no longer need to start Share Screen to use Share Play.
Add a player to a group or create a new group directly from the message map. You can also send video clips, images, quick messages, and view group shared media from this card.
- Now when a member of a group shares their screen, you will see the broadcast icon. You can check this in the [Parties] tongue.
- The player search function and friend requests are now under the [Friends] tongue.
- We’ve made it easier to decline friend requests by adding a [Decline] button to your friend request list.
In (Accessibility), we’ve updated the following:
- We’ve updated the following for the PlayStation 5 screen reader:
The screen reader is now supported in six additional languages: Russian, Arabic, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, and Korean.
The screen reader can now read notifications aloud.
- You can now enable mono audio for headphones so that the same sound plays through both left and right headphones.
When your headset is connected, go to [Settings] > [Sound] > [Audio Output] then turn on [Mono Audio for Headphones]. Otherwise, go to [Settings] > [Accessibility] > [Display and Sound] then turn on [Mono Audio for Headphones].
- You can now display a check mark on enabled settings so you can easily see that they are enabled.
Go to [Settings] > [Accessibility] > [Display and Sound] then turn on [Show Tick on Enabled Settings].
The PlayStation 5 is now available for purchase worldwide.
